Cómo se transforma el plástico en ropa

How are our textiles created?

All our garments are created with a sustainable textile. This is composed of a classic mixture of recovered cotton and polyester from post-consumer PET bottle recycling, this means that the discarded clothing cuts that are textile waste are the raw material. With this we not only use virgin raw material, but we also save water, energy and designs that end up in landfills.

1. Recovered cotton

To achieve this process, what is done is that the clothing cuts of different companies are collected, these are divided by colors and go through machines where they are crushed and processed until they become the cotton balls that we all know but already with the colors that parted.

After this process, the cotton is spun, that is, twisted to create a thin thread. This is the one used to weave the fabrics.

2. PET bottles

In this process what is done is that the plastic bottles are collected, the labels are removed and disinfected, later they go through a machine that crushes them and transforms them into "flakes" or "flakes". After this process they pass to a polymerization process and are turned into pet chips or pellets.

These pellets are the raw material for everything that is made with plastic, whether they be bottles or textiles, but in our case it is transformed into Polyester that is generated when the pellets are put in a machine that melts it and where it comes out like a shower.
3. Textile

The last step is to weave these threads and create different textiles, whether it is knitted for sacks or for T-shirts and flat knitting.

Our threads have the following certificate:

GRS (Global recycled standard) is designed to meet the needs of companies seeking to verify the recycled content of their products (both finished and intermediate), and to verify responsible social, environmental and chemical practices in their production. The objectives of the GRS are to define requirements to ensure accurate content statements and good working conditions, and that the harmful environmental and chemical impact has been minimized.
